    costa rica transportation question

    Im going to CR in 2 weeks and im flying into liberia and staying at a place called cafe playa negra. The hotel has thier own pickup from the airport for $95 but i was wondering if anyone knew a cheaper way to get from liberia to playa negra.

    You might be able to find a taxi at the airport for cheaper... But, if it was me, I'd prob just stick with the transportation provided by your accommodation, since you know you wont have to worry about anything.

    if thats to and from the airport, thats not too bad. Otherwise, it would be cheaper to just catch a cab. might be like $25 each way. are you taking a board?

    it's takes about an hour and a half, give or take to get from Liberia to Playa Negra....I didn't see any taxis in the parking lot at the airport when I was there, which was in if you are going to get a taxi, I would recommend finding a taxi company b4 you get there....otherwise I would agree with the $95 and rest easy knowing you won't have to worry about anything...

    im sure they have a bus service that would take you in the right direction...i was going to go to negra but ended up somewhere else.. i did some research and found a few bus companys.. i want to say it was on the airports acutal website.

    When I went in January there were about 30 people clamoring to give out rides. It could be a headache and many dont speak english. I would avoid the headache and do it even if it costs you $30 more.

  7. use the hotels transportation it will make your travels less hectic. talk to people around town for your trip back and maybe you can save a few colones.

    pura vida

    thanks for the help. ill do a little more research but i guess it would be better off playing the extra money and just have the hotel do it since its my first trip there

    +1 on the rental, especially if your have at least one othe rperson to share it with. You can get a free van to the rental place which is right around the corner from the airport, and grab your rental.

    Get one of the little dihatsu 4x4s that look like a roller skate. That way you can get to the surrounding breaks.
